Course Description

Pre-Algebra is an honors-level middle school course that prepares students for the study of Algebra 1. This course is suitable for mathematically advanced fifth and sixth graders, in addition to seventh and eighth graders who would like to build a strong foundation in Pre-Algebra concepts.

Pre-Algebra A covers four broad topics: arithmetic review; fractions, decimals, percents, and ratios; arithmetic expressions; and exponents and radicals. Concepts learned in this class could help a student understand for example, what time they needed to wake up in order to make it to a commitment on time (by calculating the time it will take to eat, bathe, and travel to the end destination).

Who's this course for

Age 10-13

Prerequisites

Late Elementary B (or 5th grade math)

This course typically takes 4-7 months to complete. This depends on the student's dedication to homework, their previous experience, and the difficulty of course material. Our instructors move at the pace of the student, taking extra time to reinforce concepts as needed.
